Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - June 24, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta VOLUME VI. TWELVE IMAGES Lethbridge, Alberta. Tiiosdjiy, June 24,191 :j PRICE-FIVE CENTS Number 164 GO TO THE CARNIVAL AT THE FAIR GROUNDS TONIGHT GIVES THOUSAND DOLLARS FOR MEMORIAL iSPl Lord Strathcona's Gen--erous Gift to riucher , Creek's Worl-hy In-stitutioii Pincher CreeK, June 23.-Vcatcrday T\'as the thirteenth anniversary of the skirmish at Honing Spruit, South Afrioa, in v,hich a nuniher of Pincher Creek boys were killcfl, and while the day was fittingly ohsorvcri hy^ some oE the local churches, it was a day ot special elation on the part of the directors of the Memorial hospital, which was erected in commemoration of the events above referred tn. As has hcen so frnt|iiently stated in thciio coUirans of latei the maua^e-ment of the hospital have assiRned themselves the task of raisins the BUm of $3,son this year to wipe out the accumulated deficits of seven ot eight years, and to make some absolutely necessary improvements to the buildings and grounds. Their elation can therefore be better imap;ined than described when Secretary lioss" telephoned the glad tidings on Sunday morning that he had been advised by LORD STRATHCONA Lord atrathcona that His Lordship would be pleased to donate $1,000 towards the amount required. The only condition attached is that "Was Erected in Memory of Heroes oi' Honing Spruit, ill Houth A IVieii the board of directors must raise the balance of the .suni niiiiicd, viz.; $2,-500. .This they feel guile cerlain they can accomplish by means of their "Whirlwind Campai)!;n," which will be inaugurated in September.

RAYMOND S BRITAIN'S HONORED GOES Landed at Portsmoutli and Was Met l)y the Prince of Wales London, June 34.-The friendly, feeling between Ci-reat Britain and France was nianifestcd today on the arrival in London of President Raymond Poincare. The � French President is tu be the guest ot King Weorge ami the British nation until June 27. .AIf (he newspapers in editorial, articles today heartily welcomed the Frcucli President. President Poincare arrived olt Portsmouth early this morning. A(-1cr passing in review a.notable gathering of British war vessels he landed at the dockyard, where he was met hy the youyg I'rihce of Wales, %vho on this occasion ot his first important represontative function dis-� played great" coiiVppsure. The President and the Princi) of HVales, after receiving an address of welcome from the civic authorities; departed on the royal train for London, accompanied by a brillian-t staff of military and RAYMOND POINCARE-. naval o.lTicers. King Geprge>-was � at Victoria station to greet -the President. His Majesty attcr exchanging.a few cordial words with his guest, es- c El ' When two years ago, the Exhlbltloa (Board decided that nine buildings to jiccoiiimodate Uvc Btook at the annual fair should be built, and up to date they had never been filled, some thought it was a waste ot money, but. It they want that thought dispelled, all they have to do is to take a wulk to the grounds this week, and find the bulldlngis not only overcrowded, but Bome entries forced to find a resting place outsid�. From, a stockman's point of view, the 1�13 exhibition sets a now record. It Is without a single doubt, the finest ooUeptlon of fancy live stock ever assembled at one time between Calgary and the boundary. The cream of Canada, from Toronto to the Rookies, is there. Every class ds botcer filled this year than at any previous fair. The quality of the .stock is better, and in spite of this being the first fair on the circuit ot western cities, they � are all in good Bhow condition. In neajly every case they have been shipped direct from the owners' farms to Lethbrldge to commence the big circuit which ends in September. The horse entries display an admir-ablti group of horsefJesh, which bears 'out rhe contention of Alberta that it Is the Kentucky ot Canada. While there are many entries from outside the province, these are mostly In the fancy'classes. The hlg heavydraughts are nearly all from the province, and would take the blue ribbons in any parade. Shires, Clydes, Percherons, Belgians and Suftolks are there. The number of hackneys and roadsters is graater-than usual while there is also ft good following in the pony classes. There is one disappointment however. The Percheron class, on which the- Lethbrldge fair always prided itself, is Jiot up to the mark of other years. J, C. Drewry of the Glenvlew Ranch, Cowloy, has 11 from his stables >ut there are only three or tour other entries. Mr. Drewry is disappointed. The absence of Geo. Lane's string makes quite a dlilterence, and competition in this class cannot be expected to be very keen. However, Mr. Drewry will n>eet Mr. Lane In Calgary next week when. tha old, rivalry will once more be satisfied. A. Dollar, ot High River, is showing in the horse classes tor the first time. He has a fine string of Clydea, most of them imported for breeding purposes on his big ranch there. Horse Judging commenced this'afternoon, and will continue all day tomorrow. Mr. Richards will judge the Percherons, Mr. Swinnerton the Clydes and Shires and W. R. Lowes the light classes. These men are all from the government agricultural department, specially picked for judging these olaaaes. , The cattle classes are exceedingly well filled, the presence of so much dairy stock being the feature. The provincial government has sent down a carload of dairy shorthorns from their demonstration farms. They are a fine looking lot dt cows and will attract much attention.  At, the head of the herd is one of the finest bulls in the whole exhibition, probably one of the largest animals ever seen on the grounds. From lack of accommodation one herd of Jersey dairy cat-tie has been forced to take an outside enclosure. One look at the sheep and - cattle pens is enough to convluce anyone that Southern Alberta is bent on following mixed farming in future. Two years ago there was one little herd of swine in one corner of a building; Today there is one whole building filled, another building partly filled, while one of the cattle barns, has been encroached upon. The stock Is nil of the best, and will porve an educa-tlon to Southern, ^Itierta farmers who have come .to be convinced that there is money In the hog. CCoBtinued on piuto 10).

"The inistake, in our ppinion," says the Financial Times, "is to class all Canadian municipalities in one category. Some of the smaller communities have been going the pace a little too much. These enterprising young communities should be chary of injuring their credit by risking a Tude rebuff in the money market, especially at a time like the present, when the market is glutted with cheap securities." The ,3tar points out that the attitude here is a warning that the time has arrived when Canadian borrowers must proceed iit a slowev pace. The e\'ll of overlcnding is as great as the evil of over borrowing. Doth must now be checked. The undermentioned recent loans are now quoted on the London Stock E.\ohange: City of Edmonton 6 per cents., at three-quarters of one tier cent, dis--count; Province of Manitoba.4per cents., at a half per cent, discount; City of Montreal 4Hper cfents., at 1% per cent, premium; City of Port Ar-. thur 5 per cents., at % per cent, discount; City of Prince Alberta 4V4 p�r cents., at % per cent, premium; Province of Quebec'4% per cents., at 2% per cent, premium; Province of Saskatchewan 4 'per cents., at 1% per cent, discount; Gity of Toronto 4 per cents., at par; City of Winnipeg 4% per cents., at 3% per cent, premium.
